On a recent police Facebook post about obeying school bus traffic signals, one Bridgeville resident compained about speeding on McLaughlin Run Road:
It is fun getting out of your car on mclaughlin run as cars speed past going over 50 mph, at least some drivers move over, I have talked to the chief about kids waiting at the bus stop while drivers speed past but I seldom see enforcement.
The department responded thus:
The original post was aimed at reminding motorsts to heed the flashing red lights and stop signs arms that activate when children board or exit school buses.
Morning and afternoon commuters, please be aware of children entering or exiting school busses with flashing red lights and stop signal arms actuated. Be advised that on four lane undivided highways, such as the 700 block of Washington Avenue, all traffic, in both directions, must stop. The same applies at intersections, all traffic must remain stopped until the flashing red signals and stop signal arms are no longer actuated.
Failure to so do can bring a $250.00 fine, 5 points on your driver’s license, and a 60-day license suspension.
